What are Ayurvedic Treatments
Ayurvedic spas offer spa treatments that are based on the ancient Vedic system of health called Ayurveda. Ayurveda is an ancient system of preventive health care, developed in India over 6,000 years ago.
Spa treatments that are based on Ayurvedic knowledge work at a very deep level to thoroughly cleanse the body of toxins and remove physiological imbalances. The treatments can be for general health and wellness or catered toward treating a specific ailment.
What to look for in an Ayurvedic Spa
Look for a Spa that Diagnoses Before Treating - A good Ayurvedic spa will offer Ayurvedic treatments that are catered to your specific needs. At The Raj, before treatments begin, customers are given a detailed health analysis, and a health consultation. During the consultation, pulse diagnosis is used to detect subtle imbalances, and an Ayurvedic expert recommends the appropriate plan to relieve these imbalances. From that point on the entire treatment process is customized, from the type of food served to the type of treatments and the specific herbs used in the the massage oils. This is all very important because treatments that are good for one person, may be less beneficial or even be harmful to a person with a different body type or with another condition.
Look for Authentic Ayurveda Treatments - There a quite a few spas now offering Ayurvedic treatments but very few that offer authentic Ayurvedic treatments, and there is a difference. Unlike other forms of spa treatments the Ayurvedic approach is very comprehensive and precise. Many spas claiming to offer Ayurvedic spa treatments (including spas in India) only have partial knowledge of Ayurveda and end up offering treatments that are not very different to conventional spa treatments.
The Raj Resort is a result of the most complete revival of Ayurvedic knowledge in modern history and is fortunate enough to be able to offer truly authentic Ayurveda spa treatments. The procedures used at The Raj have been put together by many of India's top Ayurvedic physicians under the direct guidance of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, and are the purest form of Ayurveda treatments available.
What to Expect
When you receive genuine Ayurvedic treatments you can expect a deeply relaxing experience where every opportunity is taken to help your body relax and release even the mostly deeply rooted toxins. In order to be performed correctly these treatments must be both enjoyable and completely comfortable, because only then can the physiology reach the necessary point of relaxation from which toxins can be released.
